Sell Out: Street artists go Madison Avenue.


Desperate times call for desperate measures. Cash For Your Warhol, by Hargo (aka Geoff Hargadon).

I’ve organized a little online show for the folks behind the Add-Art Firefox plug-in that riffs on advertising and selling out. For the purpose of this digital gathering, I’ve teamed up with eight brand name vandals — Stikman, Skewville, infinity, Hargo, eko, Celso, Cake and Abe Lincoln Jr. –  to replace all of those annoying web ads with something waaaay artier and  entertaining. (Haven’t heard of the plug-in? You can read all about it here and download it here.)

In this post, find examples of each of the artists’ “campaigns.” To see the complete series of pieces that each artist created (along with an explanatory write-up of the show), visit Add-Art.org.

Special thanks to Hana Newman for pulling this together.
